Winter Solstice Dusk Ceremony

Rookwood General Cemetery and Living with our Dead invite you to the Winter Solstice Dusk Ceremony at Rookwood Cemetery.

Date: Saturday 22nd June, 2019

Time: 4pm – 7pm

Location: The Elephant House, off Necropolis Drive. Enter at the Devonshire Street Gates (see map below)

The Winter Solstice brings us to a threshold moment inviting contemplation on what we lay to rest and what we bring forth. As the shortest day turns into the longest night and we move from light into dark and back into light, the Dusk Ceremony offers an honouring of integration, rest and renewal.

This ceremonial event will include lantern making and ceremony at the Elephant House, followed by a light supper, and drumming around a heartwarming fire.

Bring your family and friends or come on your own, all ages are welcome.
